IF YOU ARE ASKING YOURSELF THESE QUESTIONS THEN THIS SEMINAR IS FOR YOU


I am faced with limited resources and a reduced budget. How can I manage my maintenance program more efficiently?
Where does oil analysis fit into my maintenance program and how do I make the most from what oil analysis is telling me?
Where do I learn proven procedures to run a world-class oil analysis program and how do I make the most from what oil analysis is telling me?


TRAINING SEMINARS THAT WILL CHANGE THE WAY YOU VIEW LUBRICATION & OIL ANALYSIS


LEARN HOW OTHER COMPANIES HAVE DEVELOPED SUCCESSFUL OIL ANALYSIS PROGRAMS
Many companies have made oil analysis a successful tool within their maintenance program. For these companies creating a successful oil analysis program took years of experience to develop the knowledge to turn oil analysis data into appropriate maintenance actions. Developing proper oil analysis procedures, learning to properly interpret oil analysis data, and creating a corporate culture that embraced oil analysis was a long journey.

DEVELOP THE KNOWLEDGE TO KICK-START YOUR OWN OIL ANALYSIS PROGRAM
Undoubtedly if you have not taken that journey you are not sure how oil analysis fits within your maintenance program, and you require the knowledge to make oil analysis more successful within your organization. If you want to avoid making the mistakes these companies made, and if you want to learn the insights that these companies gained by trial and effort you need the training that Lubrigard offers.

IMPROVE THE WAY YOU DO MAINTENANCE
The Lubrigard Oil Analysis and Advanced Oil Analysis courses will first teach you the fundamentals of oil analysis, then teach you the skills necessary to ensure the success of your own oil analysis program. This course goes beyond the basics and shows you the necessary strategies to improve your maintenance through the integration of oil analysis. In just three days you will gain the knowledge to significantly improve the way you do maintenance within your company.
